All provinces see decline in new infections, but 253 more die of Covid-19

There were 253 more coronavirus-related deaths in South Africa on Wednesday, the Department of Health announced, with 7 338 more people getting infected with the virus.

This takes South Africa’s Covid-19 death toll to 84 152, while the new infections take confirmed infections since last March to over 2.8 million in the country.

According to the National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD), the majority of new cases were from KZN, Western Cape and the Eastern Cape.

NICD acting director Professor Adrian Puren said the Gauteng and Limpopo provinces were officially out of the third wave while all provinces were seeing a decline in new cases.

“Although the total number of cases today is higher than yesterday (n= 5 372) and higher than the average number of new cases per day over the previous seven days, the number of new cases and positivity rate have decreased nationally compared to last week,” he said.
